This issue has been discussed a lot before...
Anyway,I don't think it is that slow in comparison to the 1999 version anime. I think the pace is pretty good so far .We are already at the heaven arena arc in the latest episode whereas in the 1999 version ,we'll most likely be stuck in the hunter exam arc.
Though I'm no big fan of the fillers they add in...
I heard that viz has censored Hunter x hunter volumes. Is that true? I was going to buy the NGL arc. I have vol 1 - 3 and there is no censorship. Not that there is somting to censor.
Well, from your comments I am inclined to revisit the anime again...
I bet you will not regret this decision. But if you thought the pace was slow back them, instead of starting from the beginning, maybe you should jump right to the Zevil Island episodes. Even though it may be where the anime starts to slow a little down, as someone pointed last page, it's exactly where the real action starts.
thanks. But I read the posts again, and missed to see someone mention about fillers. Boy, that turned me down. Reminded me why I read manga in the first place: to get away from fillers.
It's not like there are filler episodes. There only three instances when filler was added. One was the waiting room in trick tower, which is probably the weakest filler. The other fillers expand on things that were not really mentioned in the manga in detail, or at all. One is the canary meeting, and the other is how Kurapika meets his master. None of the fillers are inconsistent with the manga, and they are not really an episode long. The first two filers I mention are half an episode, while the last one is about a third of an episode. That is all the filler that has been added.
oh wow I never realized they censor even stuff like that.
I have Vagabond from Viz, and provided that it's seinen, I think there is no censorship there (breasts, etc). So far I only have Rurouni Kenshin (6 volumes) from viz that is shounen, and I haven't noticed any censorship for that manga so far.
Oh, I should probably clarify something regarding the censorship. I'm fairly certain that Nexgear decensored those panels themselves. I haven't taken a look at the Japanese version of volume 23 in a long time, but I think the panels have those same black boxes. If you take a look at Togashi's drafts, the same things are censored.
Leorio is gazing towards Kurapika, possibly indicative of his perception of Kurapika's dark nature in the Yorknew City arc. He's the only one of the four protagonists who sees the depths of Kurapika's rage.
Kurapika is gazing at Killua, possibly indicative of his distrust of the boy. I think that there's a strong possibility that the two will eventually oppose each other.
Killua is gazing towards Gon, possibly indicative of the fact that he realizes that his friend is someone who needs (or at least, Killua desires) to be protected from the world around him (see ch 230).
And Gon is staring straight ahead, wide-eyed--possibly representing the idea that he's always learning from and observing the situations that surround him without discrimination, unaware of how dangerous this is in his occupation.
Maybe I'm reading too much into this. But I appreciate it.

I've started reading Yorknew arc, and this is the first shocker!
I didn't really feel shocked about that because I watched the anime first (the old one) before reading the manga, and the voice was female.
Your surprise about certain character's sex in the world of HxH are just beginning them =P
Wait until Chimera Ants...
It's just that I saw Melody before and read some early Yorknew scanlations and I always thought she was an old man. But Now that I have the official volumes and pay more attention the the script and her side remark struck me!
Didn't expect Uvugin to die that simply!
